 Sounds like one of those reversing light switches that screws between the
 speedo and speedo cable. They were made so reversing lights could be
 retrofitted to cars that didn't have a switch on the tranny, as I understand

It's called a "tachowellenschalter" or "speedometer switch" which ties the 
speedometer cable into a backup light for transmissions that don't have 
built-in backup light switches. Connect the leads to a back-up light, and 
you'll have a beautiful connection. For information on back-up lights, you 
can use a 1967 Beetle
back-up light (they are more or less universal and are sold by RMMW as 
back-up lights that look cool) and you won't go wrong with it.  These back-up 
lights can be used with either 6 or 12 volt systems by installing the 
appropriate bulb. I learned this
while restoring my 1949 Hebm?ller.
